Though Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom appears to be fully healed from a groin injury that has cost him 11 games, Josh Harding likely will remain the team's starting goalie for the team's game on Thursday, March 22, against Calgary at the Xcel Energy Center, Wild coach Mike Yeo said after today's optional practice.

"We won't make that decision right now, but typically we would go with a goalie who had a shutout in his last game," Yeo said of Harding.
